Wayfarer - World's Blood Digi-CD
World's Blood is an engrossing ode to Colorado and its past. It's not quite as involved as Panopticon's magnum opus Kentucky, it's not hard to think of the albums in similar terms. Both take a love for their home state - warts and all - and turn it into an immersive slab of extreme metal. The cover art is one of the best cases I've seen of being a perfect representation of the music. If an extreme metal album mired in an aura of dark Americana and the old West piques your interest, you'd be remiss to overlook this wonderfully unique band.
